Year of the Pig
This month I went to the rather good
exhibition on the production of videogames at the V&A
. In amongst the many interesting things to see, there were piles of notebooks filled with handwritten notes by the different designers. It felt good to see professionals working the same way I do when I'm writing - I have cupboards full of my own notebooks from writing tabletop games. I felt the same kind of vindication when I saw an exhibition of maps by Tolkien and others who drew the map first and wrote stories around it. It's nice to know I'm doing something right.
